Peanut Butter Banana Protein Oats

I am not just obsessed with pancakes. I guess I’m obsessed with breakfast in general. And coffee. And anything breakfast related. Anyway, oatmeal is another big winner. I buy plain and do variations of flavors. Sans all the added sugar in the instant oatmeal packets that are already flavored. One of my go-to flavors is peanut butter banana. Made easier and lower calorie by the best invention in the world, PB2. I also add some of my favorite whey protein (Designer Whey). But you can add any vanilla whey protein.oats

Peanut Butter Banana Protein Oats

Serves 1/Cook Time 2 minutes!

One serving quick oats

2/3 cup water

2 tbsp PB 2

One half scoop vanilla or plain protein powder

Half a banana

Sweetener (optional)

Put oatmeal in a bowl with the water. Microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds. Stir in protein powder, PB2 and a quarter banana mashed. Add more water and stir. Microwave for 40 more seconds or until thick. Slice the rest of the banana on top. You may also want to add your sweetener of choice (honey, stevia, sugar, etc). I really don’t need sweetness so I don’t.

I used Organic plain Better Oats:

Anyone else have ideas on what to put in oatmeal to flavor it? I stick to two or three variations, usually banana, chocolate and peanut butter. Any ideas would be appreciated.

      The oats have about 300 calories. I tend to keep it under 400 at all times. It’s okay though to go a little over at breakfast because you burn most of it off during the day!
